Fusing vibrant tones with technical design codes, Samuel Ross continues to expand on A-COLD-WALL*'s Brutalist vision.
Teasing their Resort collection for 2022 ahead of the release of their AW21 offering, London's A-COLD-WALL* present a utilitarian vision with a metropolitan edge set against the Big Smoke's financial district in East London.
Encapsulating an innovative, forward-thinking and esoteric aesthetic that is rooted in a multiplicitous conceptual framework, Samuel Ross' label continues to forge a new and fresh perspective on modern luxury and streetwear-inspired design. Maintaining the brand's core ideological approach, Ross consistently remodels A-COLD-WALL*'s stylistic sensibility, ensuring that their DNA remains intact while evolving naturally.
Taking a substantially more city-centred approach, the ACW* Resort '22 offering blends asymmetrical design, garment dyeing techniques and oversized branding that Ross is known for with an eye-catching colour palette that cycles between acid yellow, safety orange, lime green and cobalt blue.
The designer's hardware motifs remain ever-present, complementing the neutrally-coloured pieces with a flourish of contemporary charm. Drawing heavily on outdoor apparel, sportswear and functional clothing, A-COLD-WALL* combine these inspirations with street-ready appeal, ensuring the ideal confluence of form, function and iconoclastic style.
